Jesse:

When I log into JHO I get the following message from Firefox;

"Firefox will display a lock icon with red strike-through
in the address bar when a login page you’re viewing does not have a secure connection. This is to inform you that if you enter your password it could be stolen by eavesdroppers and attackers."


What is the story with this?

Thanks ANDY S

probably because our SSL certificate is expired. Let me see about getting it renewed. You should be okay, the certificate just proves its JHO youre connecting with

I think this is a relatively new thing with Firefox, not the website. Basically, it's saying that you're signing on through a normal URL connection like HTTP://www.jesseshunting.com, as opposed to HTTPS://www.jesses...... I don't think anything's changed on this end. I upgraded Firefox not long ago (to version 50, I think) and started getting these notices on other websites, so I did a little investigating. It's a relatively recent change through Firefox to notify you of this possibility (where it's been true all along, they just weren't saying anything). I could be wrong, I'm typing from memory right now, but I got that same message all over the 'net after I upgraded Firefox not long ago.
